A person charged with a violent crime requires a strong and sophisticated defense. Judges are often tough on people accused of violence, and juries usually demand evidence that contradicts the prosecution before voting to acquit.
There are many different types of violent offenses, including assault and battery, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, armed robbery, attempted murder, armed assault with intent to murder, and mayhem. Sometimes charges of violence are accompanied by additional accusations such as threats to commit a crime, violation of a restraining order, or weapons charges. Every case is unique and requires special preparation.
